Tell us about your store. What inspired you to create it?

Edward Pasquesi and his wife, Marie, started the business in 1975—evolving from a small hardware store in Highland Park, Illinois into the retail business that is known today as Pasquesi Home and Gardens—which is currently located in Lake Bluff, Illinois. The heart of the business grew out of Ed Pasquesi’s early interest in plants and ‘growing living things. The retail gardening business gave Ed and Marie an opportunity to create a family business that seeks to provide exceptional customer service to Chicago’s North Shore suburbs.
